Did a little more research on the 3229 and 3227 coil springs from Moog. The 3227 is used on the Wrangler Sport (2002-2003), Sahara (2003-2004) and Rubicon (2003-2006), while the 3229 is used on the Wrangler Sahara (1997-2004), X model (2002-2005) and Sport (1997-2005) - all with the 4.0L/6 cylinder engine. The take-home on this is the Moog 3229 and 3227 springs are direct replacements for the 104AA/105AA and 106AA, respectively. The amount of lift and stiffness of ride will vary. But I'd expect the 3229 springs from Moog to be compatible with a 3-3.5 inch front spacer lift, while the 3227 would likely work better with a full 4 inch spacer lift in the front. Take that all with a grain of salt, though, because the size of your Sporty (2 door vs 4 door) and the amount of "gypsy" you have strapped to the <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/butwiggle.gif" alt="" /> will affect the stiffness of the ride and the amount of observed lift. Also, the load ratings are in my previous post are in pounds, while the spring rates are pounds per inch (lbs/in). If I were doing a lift on a 2 door, I would probably go with the 3229 springs, being that the body is lighter and the amount of compression from body weight will be less. As far as pricing, either set sells in the $59-$75 range (US prices). There's no difference in cost between the two. Food for thought...
